Sleep support

Struggling to sleep? Access free support and guidance from expert sleep coaches from the comfort of your own home

Why sleep support is important

Sleep is as important to your wellbeing as diet and exercise - and just as important for your mental health, too. However, one in three of us will experience problems with sleep at some point in our lives.

Finding the right support

Some people will resort to taking sleeping pills to get control over their sleep. However, sleeping pills do not provide natural sleep; they are often ineffective and potentially harmful. Getting good natural sleep is vital to your health. That's why we've partnered with Sleepstation to provide free support and guidance for engineers and their families who think they might have a sleep problem.

How Sleepstation works

Sleepstation offers similar support you'd get in clinics - but from the comfort of your own home! You'll work with Sleepstation to do an initial assessment to understand what kind of sleep problems you're experiencing, and trained experts will work with you to help you put what you've learned into practice.


Anyone with a connection to engineering can access a free sleep assessment from Sleepstation. The results of the assessment will indicate further support and options. Simply click the link below to register on Sleepstation's website.

Sign up to our mailing list to receive expert advice to help you improve your financial, mental and physical wellbeing, so that you can live well every day. We'll also send you the latest news and updates, and information on how you can get involved with Foothold and support the engineering community.
